Amazon is cornering another market … MBAs.

October 9, 2017

“Flooding the zone” to land the best & brightest.


Now that Amazon has staked out territory the grocery business, it’s time for them to move on to another front.

According to the WSJ: “Another Thing Amazon Is Disrupting: Business-School Recruiting”


Let’s put that in perspective:

In the past year, Amazon has hired some 1,000 newly minted M.B.A.s in the past year

Amazon is now the top MBA recruiter at Carnegie Mellon, Duke and Cal-Berkeley.

It hires the most first-year M.B.A.s at Michigan, MIT, Dartmouth College and Duke.

Last year, Amazon took in more interns from the University of Chicago than either Bain or McKinsey & Co., which were until recently the school’s top hirers of interns.


How do they do it?
